It’s not secret that the Christian Right hates Democrats and well, anyone on the left. They hate anyone who fights for scientific education, LGBTQ rights and equality, women’s rights, and the list goes on and on.
Well, Christian news site, Charisma News’ hatred for Democrats has taken a very strange turn. In order to win votes for the right, they decided the best way to discredit Hillary Clinton is to directly tie her to Satan.
Yes, Satan. The “adults” who work for Charisma News not only believe in Satan, but they think Clinton has direct ties to him.
The evidence? It’s from a letter a young Clinton sent to author Saul Alinsky, a community organizer, in 1971 about his book Rules for Radicals.“When is that new book (Rules for Radicals) coming out—or has it come and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation?” she wrote. (Emphasis mine.)
“Clinton’s curious turn of phrase—’fulfillment of Revelation’—takes a more sinister connotation when applied to the context of Alinsky’s dedication to Rules for Radicals,” writes Charisma “journalist” Bob Eschliman.
Eschliman then quotes Alinksy from Rules for Radicals, believing this is the proof that Clinton is tied directly to Satan:
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins—or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.”
Who let these people have internet access and can we take it away?
